Make A Medallion with Lace


 
 Another Irish inspired card for today.  St Patrick's day is a week away, and I can almost taste the corned beef and cabbage, except that it's going to fall on Friday.  I wonder if the bishop will give us dispensation to eat corned beef on Friday during Lent?  Maybe if I send him a nice card and ask, otherwise I will have to wait a day to fix it, and eat my fish.  (Am I showing my age?)
Today's card is made with the new two Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, Make A Medallion and  the sentiments came
from Avant Garden.  I have to admit that I had an advantage when making this card.  I used my new stamp positioner.  I just got it a couple weeks ago and it was the bees knees when it came to making the medallion.  I did a stack of these cards for a swap, and I only tossed out one mistake piece.  I added a little lace doily and ribbon to give it that extra Irish touch.  The Lovely Lace EF adds a beautifultexture that compliments the medallion, too. The card is  Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron, and Basic Black. 
Since we are really featuring all the green, I will share the card on Curtain Call where the call is for GREEN.  The SU-Only Challenge #169 is Celebrating GREEN.  Over at Seize the Birthday Challenge ANYTHING GOES, so I can share this birthday card with them too.
Hope you enjoyed the card today.
